Obama's New Visa Rules Won't Weed Out Jihadists

by JASmius

Occam's Razor: "The simplest explanation is usually the correct one":

A new visa rule for travelers from Iran, Iraq, Sudan or Syria is reportedly raising concerns about Obama administration exemptions that could undermine the aim of the restrictions — to weed out terrorists who could exploit visa rules to stage attacks on America.

The Obama administration is expected Thursday to introduce the new visa requirements for European travelers who are dual nationals of those five nations — where Islamic State terrorists have fought — or who've visited them in the last five years, following Congress' passage of a law to tighten restrictions in the Visa Waiver Program.

The changes were prompted, in part, by the terror attacks in Paris that claimed 130 lives, and were aimed at allowing security officials to more closely screen travelers from thirty-eight countries whose citizens were allowed to visit the United States without obtaining a visa....

According to the AP, an unnamed congressional aide reports the Obama administration is creating exceptions for those who travel to any of the four countries for government or United Nations work, or for humanitarian or journalistic reasons....

[T]he AP reports unnamed Republican aides saying the bipartisan legislation wasn't intended to provide such wide discretion to the executive branch. [emphases added]

The Obama Regime is violating federal law - check.  The Obama Regime is illegally usurping Article I, Section 1 legislative power - check.  The Obama Regime is aiding Islamic jihadists to infiltrate our country in order to carry out more mass casualty attacks against American civilians - check.  It fits the pattern of the Obama Regime's actions of the past seven years - check.

If anybody has any convincing alternative explanations for this aside from the nakedly obvious, I'm all ears.  And lotsa luck coming up with any.

UPDATE: Two al Qaeda explosives turned loose from Gitmo today - to "Bosnia," so they claim.
